During the flight back from Germany with an overdose of “Luther” and spending time with Lutherans from 25 different countries and cultures, I was thinking back about the conversations we had and the influences that shaped us. And I found a fresh appreciation of my own unique journey thus far with much gratitude to God. During one talk with my new Hong Kong friend the last night before we left, I found myself freely sharing the interesting theological and spiritual traditions and a variety of individual authors that I drew from. The whole conversation was actually quite energizing for me! 🙂 And it somehow helped me to know myself better and be open for new developments because one becomes more secure in ones identity.
Thanks to Pomomusings for getting some excitement sparked on Brian McLaren’s possibly most anticipated book this year. The reaction to this book I suppose might be as engaging as the content of the book, we’ll see.
